YOUNG dairy farmers are learning how they can forge a successful career in the industry.
More than 230 young dairy farmers, service providers and industry staff took part in the Milk It 4 More 'Pathways For Your Future' expo organised by the Young Dairy Development Program at Glenormiston College recently .
South-west YDDP co-ordinator Liza Fahey said the expo was designed to inspire young people to embrace new ideas and plan for the future.
"We've had a great turnout and a lot of enthusiasm from people about the program.
"The expo is an excellent way to bring young farmers together to learn from each other and from experts in their chosen fields," Ms Fahey said.
The young farmers participated in workshops, listened to speakers and were able to visit more than 20 trade sites.
OnFarm consultant John Mulvany highlighted the need for young farmers to plan for the future, improve skill levels and work hard.
"You need to start small, develop skills and be a discerning business operator. Don't die wondering, get in and have a go," Mr Mulvany said.
